Kazakh prosecutors call for opposition bans

Text size Aa Aa

Prosecutors in the central Asian state of Kazakhstan say concerns over extremism have prompted them to ask for two opposition movements critical of the country’s President to be outlawed, along with a number of related media outlets. It is being linked to last month’s jailing of opposition figure Vladimir Koslov, who is connected to the organisations. The US has accused Kazakstan of using its judicial system to silence dissent.
